(Courtesy of Tivuch Shelly) When it comes to a major purchase, involving the commitment of a large sum of money, trust is a big factor—trust in both the product one is buying and in the seller. There is generally no more major purchase in a person’s life than a home, often involving a substantial mortgage extending over several years. Trust is something that is not bought, it is earned. It comes from establishing a solid reputation built over a period of time and through supplying a consistent, solid and reliable service.
Regarding trust, there is no more solid real estate firm in Israel than Tivuch Shelly, a company with proven credentials of integrity and reliability. Tivuch Shelly is headed by Shelly Levine, a veteran olah from the U.S. who has sold over 4,000 housing units in Israel over the past 35 years. Levine has sold to new olim and veteran Israelis, focusing on Jerusalem, Ma’aleh Adumim, Beit Shemesh, Modi’in, Tel Aviv and more. She understands what people want in their homes, and makes sure, together with the developer, that they get it. Levine works with the client from first contact to completion, including personal assistance in securing mortgages on the best possible terms. In addition, she works only with developers with established reputations for excellence.
There are two other important elements that Tivuch Shelly offers that many other realtors do not: variety and flexibility. Tivuch Shelly offers real estate options of various types, in an assortment of locations, at different price levels and with varying occupancy schedules. In total: a mix that offers something for just about everyone.
Examples of Current And New Projects
For those looking for housing now in one of Jerusalem’s newest, most dynamic and fastest- growing areas, there is Arnona Place, an ultra-modern, three building development in the city’s Arnona neighborhood, to which many people, both native-born Israelis and olim, are moving. Arnona Place offers all of the conveniences of state-of-the-art housing, including underground parking and a spacious open plaza, as well as a location along one of Jerusalem’s major public transportation routes, which will include a light rail line. Since Arnona is still a neighborhood “on the rise,” prices at Arnona Place are much more affordable than in comparable neighborhoods in Jerusalem. Arnona Place is completed, people have been moving in and only a few units are still available.
A longer-term apartment project in Jerusalem is Song of the Prophets on Hanevi’im (Prophets) Street in the heart of downtown Jerusalem, bridging the seam between the centuries-old walled city and the new, dynamic city of the present day. The new, low-rise building project, with apartments ranging in size from two to five rooms, is in walking distance of the Old City and the Western Wall, the bustling downtown streets of Jerusalem and the colorful Machane Yehuda Market, and just steps away from just about every major public transportation line in the city. Song of the Prophets on Hanevi’im Street puts one in the heart of the Holy City and is being offered at a great price.
In a more advanced planning stage is Gabay Place in the heart of Tel Aviv, a complex of modern high-rise buildings that presents a unique opportunity to invest in the pulsating life of Israel’s throbbing commercial and cultural center which is changing before one’s eyes with growing steel and glass towers in every direction. Gabay provides a chance to “get in on the ground (price) floor” by buying into this exciting environment with only a 7% payment required on registration, 13% after two years and the balance of 80% only upon completion. An exceptional deal! Levine calls it one of the best real estate investment opportunities she has seen in her 35 plus years of experience in the field. Investors will see an immediate, substantial financial gain when the project is completed.
Looking into more community development, we have a brand new project, Tzur Shamir, in Ramat Beit Shemesh. Tzur Shamir includes 174 units in five luxurious buildings, three, four and five room apartments with balconies and/or gardens and luxurious penthouses facing enchanting views. Over 90 units have already been sold and every day more and more people are showing interest in this neighborhood.
Next year will see the start of another new housing and shopping development in Ma’ale Adumim. As can be seen, there is no lack of action and housing choices at Tivuch Shelly. In addition to the new projects listed here, Tivuch Shelly handles resales in numerous locations expertly and to the satisfaction of both buyers and sellers.
